We are doing some tests on shipment_out with stock_package modules (stock_package, stock_package_shipping, stock_shipment_measurements).
When doing shipment_out, we are using pallets to put our packages on it.
Is pallet considered as a package ? Is there a specific module for pallet (custom) ?
Packages in Tryton are considered as containers then pallet is not really a package but we need to use it for shipment_out with details about it (number, dimensions, …) like for packages.
Because if pallet is considered as a package in Tryton (which would be a good thing), then we need to give some extra details (length, width, height) for shipment. PackageType has such details but you never know dimensions of the packages on the pallet (it depends the way they are putted on it).
What do you think of adding fields such length, height and width on Package model ? By default those fields will have values from PackageType, but in case of package like pallet they should be updated manually when order is packed on the pallet and user measure correct dimensions.
Thanks for suggestions!
